Back Online + Milestone!

Sorry for the technical problems. Our dear host is messing with their back-end (please note all the sexual connotations possible) and I had to fix a few things. It’s all good now.

Speak Up milestone: We have just hit 10,000 comments! Well, we are actually now on 10,001.

How cool is that? Pretty damn cool if you ask me.

Very damn cool indeed. Does this mean I'm 10,002 then? Woohoo!

I just came across this site about a week ago, following a link off of the Hillman Curtis site, and I must say I'm glad I found you guys. I've always loved graphic design and art, although I'm not a professionally trained designer. I love getting to hear about things from your point of view, and reading stories, advice, and discussions that I've never come across elsewhere. So, thanks for this site and this oppportunity you've given me to rub shoulders with a bunch of real designers (as opposed toe the fake variety, like me ;)

So I must be 10,003.

Is that a prime number???

Maybe I'm the only designer (or wannabe designer) who has a math background and worries about such things.

Congratulations on such milestone (you might soon beat MacDonalds burgers sold!!!!)

Pretty damn cool. Though I'm not a designer but none the less :)

I always thought your back end was not your best feature. I mean, it works okay and all, but I always thought it could use a little work. It doesn't swish the way it used to. Maybe it's getting bloated with 10G's worth of comments. The only thing worse than a bloated back end is no back end, as I realized this morning.

Hey, I wasn't even anywhere close to your back end. So don't blame me this time.

......

These milestones are becoming old hat. Like another MJ title. So congrats until the next one.

Man, too much work to play today -- especially on eric's spectacularly long thread. But that's what I love about his rants.

Anyway, back to the quarry....

Now that Speak Up has reached 10,000 comments perhaps Speak Up can concentrate on improving its quality of writing.

pedro’s comment is:

I know nobody is worried and will not lose sleep on this.

For your info 10,000 is not a prime number although 9973, 10007, 10009, 10037, 10061, 10067, 10069 are primes. So these could become nice milestones (they are equally good than 10,000 aren't they?)

Sorry, just kibitzing

> Pedro (or should I say Mr. Vit?): You rock.

Tks for your comments.

And no, you should only say Pedro

Mr. Vit is Armin!!!!

I just wonder (still acting as a mathematician or ex mathematician) what percentage of those 10,000 comments are yours!!!!

I have read many of yours carefully and I have learned a lot. :-)

I couldn't help myself, here are some of the top comment counts (as of 11:00 am today):

Me: 1827

Tan: 781

Darrel: 640

Sam P: 459

Kiran: 324

Eric: 173

Debbie: 121

Pedro: 36

Sorry, no percentages, but based on the rounded number of 10,000 total comments you can figure it out easily.
